So, I got most of Myrtle seamed up last night - enough to try on. There will be no photos for a while. I don't quite know what I expected, because I would never design a garment with a great swathe of un-edged stocking stitch down the front, but suffice it to say that it rolls like *crazy*. Add to this the fact that the body gets no wider below the waist, and ummm..... I do. There is no way the thing could be closed pleasantly across the hips, and in fact, it pulls waaaay back around the body when held close at the waist. Another issue is that the ribbing section, intended to hit at the waist, is a wee bit too low. Either my maths/measuring skills are off, or the weight of the whole thing is stretching out the upper bodice. Either option is entirely possible. So, what to do? I think the first thing to do is try blocking the fronts. It might help; the bits below the provisional cast-on haven't been blocked, and that's most of the stocking stitch. But I'm not sure it'll help enough. Another options is to rip back and just finish the body in moss stitch - magic! no more rolling. But that's a lot of un-knitting and re-knitting, for someone who's trying to work through as much stash as possible. Hmm.
